Got it! Will it also disable 2.4G support? Or just AX on 2.4?

There are check marks on the Basic tab/Wireless settings tab next to AX mode:

2.4G and 5G

 

Just remove a check mark and select Apply.

Using FireFox, Edge, Chrome or Opera (Mac Versions too) to access the manual firmware update page and when you get the warning says downgrade to a lower version firmware. Right click on the NO button, in the browser tool window that appears, find or navigate and Left select on Inspect or Inspect Element in this window. This will open the side developer tool window. This will display the hidden button element next to "NO", and the "element.styledisplay: none" should be seen on same line, remove the "none" by pressing the delete on the key board to delete this work and "Yes" will show up in the main browser FW web page. Then click YES to send the Firmware.

I am running 3.2.18.1. I apologize I did forget to add that I had blocked updates via Pi-hole.

 

For anyone interested, I am running Pi-hole in a Docker instance on my Synology NAS. Many users run it on a Raspberry Pi or Pi Zero (it's incredibly lightweight). I've been using Pi-hole for a couple years now. The benefits of network-wide ad blocking and the ability to DNS blacklist web services and sites is invaluable with children in the home *cough*Youtube*cough*. You just set the DNS used by the network to the Pi-hole and it acts as a DNS intermediary with your preferred upstream provider. It's simple, elegant, and I've only found it to have a positive impact on network performance.

Thank you , this worked. I downgraded and then used opendns to block any future automatic firmware updates. For the first time in MANY MANY MONTHS my router actually works properly.

 

Netgear is such a disaster. Such a disapointment.

Why did I upgrade the firmware?!?  After the upgrade, the ethernet backhaul between the RBR750 and RBS750 is not working anymore.   I rebooted several times.   The RBS750 is only connecting thru the WiFi.   Help!

Re: New - RBR750 / RBS750 Firmware Version 4.6.5.14 Released

I've actually had some success with this firmware version on a RBK752 system.  However, I have an Ethernet backhaul, and I never experienced the satellite disconnect issues that others have posted about.  What I did have previously was endpoint loss-of-connection when moving from the main router to a satellite (e.g., iPhone moving around the house).  I would lose connectivity despite having very strong Wifi signals, so it was some kind of handoff failure. Prior to this version, the problem occurred in all 4- version firmware, regardless of changes in settings (and I tried many). That appears to be resolved. I also get fairly consistent test results using the Orbi internal speed test now, which in my case is about 1400Mbs.

Re: New - RBR750 / RBS750 Firmware Version 4.6.5.14 Released

i updated the latest firmware and i thought one of the fixes was for the satellite to stop cycling through the various stages to connecting to the router.  

 

i am using RBK752 and added a satellite - the satellites are frequently lit blue.  I guess lit blue is better than being lit magenta!

 

oh well - so much for the firmware fix.  The satellites are properly spaced.  We do live in NYC in an apartment..

Re: New - RBR750 / RBS750 Firmware Version 4.6.5.14 Released

Can you log in to the RBS web page then see if the front LED turns OFF? BLUE should be ON for about 3 minutes then should turn OFF.

 

Whats that RBS status seen on the RBRs web page? 

 

Has a factory reset and setup from scratch been performed since last FW update? A complete pull of the power adapters for a period of time after the factory reset then walk thru the setup wizard and setup from scratch.
I would power OFF the ISP modem for 1 minute. Factory reset the Orbi router and power it off. Power ON the ISP modem and let it sync. Then power ON the Orbi router and walk thru the setup wizard again using a wired PC and a web browser.

The ISP modem has nothing to do with the issues Orbi has. The only time you need to consider the ISP modem is conenctivity to the services it provides.

Satellites are still randomly rebooting, but the router itself is working. At least disruption is minimal, my devices are just switching between router of satellites. Less disruption, but annoying.

Re: New - RBR750 / RBS750 Firmware Version 4.6.5.14 Released

yes same to me, i moved now all home automation related staff to a cheap 2.4ghz wifi to have at least those running stable. i have one rbr750 and 4x rbs750. I did a lot of try and errors the last month but nothing helped to have a stable system. it s really a shame to deliver buggy firmware to a commercial product. if i look to the wireshark traces i m sure they are "calling home" to send data about errors etc so i think netgear should have enough data to fix it. i m happy to have another beta if netgear needs beta testers. and fyi i have enough distance between the devices. i have a  stable router (opnsense without any issues on other vlans with cheap wifi mesh systems) there are only my other cheap wifi devices but enough free channels between. also the wifi devices have enough distance to the orbi devices.

Curious to see if disabling AX mode on the RBR changes any behavior of the RBS? 

 

You may want to consider reverting FW back to v3...

Understand. Running out of options here so you'll need to contact NG support and express your information to them.

Reverting the system while you wait for NG support is an option you should look at.
